DPP reshuffles cashgate prosecuting team: No seizure of suspects’ property

Director of Public Prosecution (DPP) is reorganising the prosecuting team of the Malawi’s cashgate scandal and the special state prosecutor Kamudoni Nyasulu has been taken out from handling the cases, Nyasa Times understands.

Kamudoni: Special Prosecutor role reviewed

Sources at Ministry of Justice told Nyasa Times that Nyasuslu who was handling the cases with another special prosecutor Enock Chibwana, a former Ombudsman, will be replaced.

Nyasulu’s role was questioned in court recently by former justice minister Ralph Kasambara who wondered if the law allow for a special prosecutor.

Kasambara -who is one of those answering charges of money laundering involving cashgate- questioned the process Nyasulu was appointed arguing that it was not in line with the Public Finance Management Act, Public Procurement Act and Public Audit Act.

Said Kasambara: “I will not support short-cuts in the pretence of special prosecutions.”

Meanwhile, the Anti-Corruption Bureau (ACB) will not seize property of Cashgate suspects, according to the bureau’s deputy director Reyneck Matemba.

“We have learnt some bitter lessons where we [ACB] and government have been dragged to court by individuals claiming millions or billions of kwacha in compensation for property damaged, vandalised or deteriorated while in our custody,” Matemba is quoted in The Nation.

“The property which we can restrict in this regard is that property that is the subject of an investigation or prosecution, or is otherwise implicated in such investigation or prosecution.”

According to ACB, due to the unknown duration of Cashgate trials, the bureau feels it is better not to seize property despite the Forfeiture Act giving it mandate.

    Can someone give a breakdown by tribes of people implicated in the cashgate? I would be very surprised if Tumbukas top the list. Tumbukas always hold themselves in high esteem, so please give us statistics by tribe of those implicated in the cashgate.

    The whole process is part of the Cashget.

    There are too many fishes,and too many interested parties including the so and so.
    Malawians are being taken for a ride,as all they want is to share the spoils at the end of this nyasi.

    The reshuffle will certainly cause delays. DPP thieves are afraid of these two good lawyers on their 92 billion & K70 million NACGATE. They want to replace them with Alomwe so that they are saved. Mbava izi. Pitala ndi Mbava yoopsa yoti yikafika mnyumba kumapanganso rape azimayi. Shupiti!

  16. Bwampini Peter Mathanyula says:

    This is a joke of the century. Both Kamudoni Nyasulu & Enock Chibwana had been the best during their times. To show seriousness in prosecuting these Cash gate thieves, Joyce Banda had to hire the best lawyers/prosecutors to handle this case no wonder Ralph Kasambara is afraid of them.

    Now that DPP Govt is affected and tainted with the K92 billion cash gate, they have thought it wise to reshuffle the prosecuting team so much so that no one is sentenced to prison. these DPP thieves must be thrown into prison and Ndata grabbed into govt property.

  20. VYOTO says:

    IT WAS EXPECTED THAT KAMUDONI NYASULU AND ENOCK CHIBWANA NO MATTER HOW COMPETENT THEY MAY BE COULD NOT SURVIVE UNDER THE ADMINISTRATION OF THIS UNCIVILIZED AND WITH TOO MUCH LOMWELIZED THINKING, PETER MUTHALIKA. ALL THAT PETER WANTS IS A LOMWE NETWORK (DPP,ATTORNEY GENERAL) TO BE IN CONTROL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  21. sayimoni bayisikolo says:

    Malawians should have the ultimatum to give the govt.The backdoor Pitala govt have a choice to keep the cashgate thieves and go with them before 2019 because Pitala and his crooked cronies do not own Malawians.Malawi belongs to the Malawians who are feeling the pangs of this cashgate with the withdraw of aid because of the few greedy ones who wanted to make a name in a wrong way.Its time the whole Malawi made a very huge demonstration that we are not happy with the way how the govt is handling these crucial cashgate issues and others.The JB govt and the backdoor Pitalas one hv taken Malawians for a ride.Its time the whole Malawi took an action.The power belongs to the mass oppressed Malawians.

    Cashgate from 2005…..06….09…13..revealed..2014….29days to 2015…now its when we are changing the prosecuting team, cases and main culprits still free..2016..17..18..2019 woyee! chala mwamba. This is only possible where the government is being runned by fellow culprits.The saying goes it takes a thief to catch a thief but it seems it takes a thief to cover up for a fellow thief..search me iam just saying what iam seeing!

  23. Bongololo says:

    Yeah, of course! I bet they’re making room for another Mlomwe.

  24. Men Vs Boys says:

    What do you expect ,at the end of the he walks a free man … and Govt will have to cough him more bucks.

    If the law mandates you to seize property, what are you afraid of? Zamkutu!!

  27. Mulopwana Wa Mamwene says:

    Koma yaaaa…..!!!!! Malawi akulowela kuti uyu???

  28. mwana mulopwana says:

    I am very afraid if this is the way we are to handle cashgate cases, it seems both judicialy and ACB are not serious, it will be good if the donor agency bring in learned prosecution team from UK to handle the cases otherwise zikuchitika apa ndi phada
